Good 55º gloomy cloudy morning.
You have got to see this video... lion cubs giving hugs. OMG! Thanks Spencer (retired LACoFire and former high school pal) and Tally Huntoon !!!!!
So.... went back to the fairgrounds. If I had wanted to park in the lot it would have cost me $4 again, but the gate guy let me park just outside the gate, and as it was, a closer walk to the entrance! Then, at the entrance I showed them all my receipts (fair entrance and picture receipt) and they let me go on it. Curtis was happy to see me pick up the picture. He had his laptop and I directed him to my blog with his picture. He laughed and said it was his twin, because he's much thinner! Curtis! Also, my friend Felicity was there again and we chatted along with Sandy Schmidt. Hadn't seen her in a while. Here is "my lion"....
The detail in the embroidery is amazing!
and....... my little lion!
I am soooo happy with this picture!
On my way home I stopped at 7 Oaks Farm. On their FB page it said "melons... buy 3 get 1 free", so I did. They are cantaloupes and soooooo good!!! Also got zucchini and yellow squash, leeks, red potatoes... will cook up something. Their first corn will be ready on the 25th.
And a stop at the Post Office to retrieve a package... The 'General' sent me a full size box of their new cereal. Very tasty!!!!
What a beautiful day is was to be out driving....
... and for those of you passing through this area... look for my name on the road by Rogue River exit 48!
Lunch was pasta noodles parmesan with broccoli...
The little deers were out munching on the deer block and the pear tree....
Our 'big boy' is getting a nice rack!
(Sorry fuzzy, low light and behind a double paned window)
Then the younger buck and a doe were back later....
Harley went out on the porch and was laying under a table... I thought it was a cute picture...
Last night the sky was beautiful....
